First, I give you the headline:Â STUDY: Air Pollution Dimming World’s Skies (as published in the Charlotte Observer’s print edition on 3/13/09)
Now the lead paragraph:
The skies are dimming, for most of the world. Increases in airborne pollution have dimmed the skies by blocking sunlight over the past 30 years, researchers report in Friday’s edition of the journal Science.
And now the most ridiculous statement from theÂ Associated Press that I have seen in quite some time (which doesn’t take much).
They reported that dimming is occurring everywhere except Europe, where declines in pollution have resulted in brighter skies.
REALLY?Â So declines in pollution have brightened Europe’s skies, but the non-industrialized continent of Africa has higher “global dimming” than Europe??Â Â That stretches the logic of man, weather and physics.
If Europe has been soooo good in reducing their polution, then the skies over Moscow should be experiencing brighter skies.Â And what about Africa?Â Is non-existent industrialization in Africa resulting in an increase in “global dimming”?Â Â That should shoot to hell the Global Warming fanactics, eh?
The study does note brighter skies in Europe, but the AP is the one that editorializes as to the reason being “Europe’s declining pollution.”
MSM Bias — Always on display.Â Â Global Warming Scaremongering — Never too far behind.
